Abstract

Blood oxygen level-dependent (BOLD) contrast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has been applied to investigate kidney oxygenation in human patients. These investigations reflect the progress of radiology from a primarily anatomic discipline to one that provides insight into tissue physiology. In particular, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is non-invasive, uses no ionizing radiation, and provides insight into disease development and tissue physiology.
